We collect personally identifiable information, including your name, postal address, telephone number and e-mail address. Sargento collects your personally identifiable information when you provide it voluntarily, such as when you register at this website or sign up for special promotions. You are not required to register in order to visit this website or access most content, including Recipe Central. However, by registering, you will have access to certain additional features such as our money-saving e-mail promotions. 

We do not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may combine non-personal information collected through cookies and related tracking technologies (see below) with your previously submitted personally identifiable information. Among other uses, we (with assistance of our third-party service provider) use personally identifiable information to improve our promotional efforts, to analyze website use, to improve our website, and to deliver customized content based on the information you've provided and your activities on this website.

Personally Identifiable Information is Collected in These Areas:

Aggregate Information

We also collect non-personally identifiable or aggregate information, such as how many consumers visit the site, what pages are accessed, and which browsers or operating systems are used. We collect aggregate information automatically and use it to provide an enhanced online experience for visitors.


Aggregate information generally is collected using "cookie" technology. A "cookie" is a small data file that is stored in a single directory on the hard drive of your computer.

Cookies help us identify site features and items of interest to you, so we can provide more of what you want. Cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information and cannot profile your system or collect information from your hard drive.

But remember, cookies allow you to take advantage of all the features on the Sargento website.

Remarketing and Conversion Pixels

Third-parties may place and use pixels on our website to help us understand, for marketing purposes, the types of target audiences that are coming to our site. The pixels allow us to remarket by showing interest-based ads to our visitors over time and on sites across the Internet. The pixels collect information based on interests and location, not personally identifiable information. No personally identifiable information will be used or transferred to these third-parties or Sargento through these pixels. A visitor to our website can opt out of receiving interest-based ads by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page.

Cross-Device Tracking and Analytics Tools

Our website uses cross-device tracking to identify a visitor to our website on multiple devices, such as computers, cell phones, and tablets, and to provide interest-based ads among those devices.

  • Demographic
  • Location
  • Behavior (new vs. returning visitor, frequency of visits, etc.)
  • Technology (browser & OS, network)
  • Mobile (devices)
  • Interests

A visitor to our website can opt-out of cross-device tracking and analytics tools by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page. A visitor who wishes to avoid all targeted ads should opt-out on all devices individually.


In the "Contact Us" section of our site, we ask for personally identifiable information,  specifically your name, postal address, e-mail address or phone number if you have a request, question, or comment about a Sargento® product, offer or recipe.

Interest Based Advertising and Digital Advertising Alliance Compliance

Sargento, through some of its media partners, engages in interest-based advertising, also known as online behavioral advertising (OBA). OBA is the collection of data online from a particular computer or device regarding Web viewing behaviors over time and across non-affiliate Web sites for the purpose of predicting user preferences or interests and delivering advertising to that computer or device based on the preferences or interests inferred from such Web viewing behaviors. This data is used by our partners to deliver advertisements for Sargento® products on non-affiliate websites. The types of data collected are as follows:

Types of information collected by Sargento

  • Information such as dates and times of interactions consumers have with us;
  • Identifiers such as IP address, device ID, cookie identifiers and other similar identifiers;
  • Location information, where our digital services collect location information, whether due to the activation of location-based services on your device or as inferred from IP address or network connection;
  • Information about web and application activities such as recipe and product pages viewed, interaction with our emails, search terms and requests sent to our Consumer Affairs team via the “Contact Us” form on our website

Types of information collected by our partners

  • We collect information from other sources including web hosting providers, data and analytics providers, social media platforms, companies that provide information and insights about consumer interests and activities;
  • Identifiers, such as your name, contact information, social media handle, cookie identifiers, and information about the devices you use to access our digital services;
  • Demographics, such as your age and gender;
  • Inferences regarding preferences or other characteristics, such as preferences, hobbies and interests.

Sargento and our partners comply with the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising. Individuals who wish to exercise choice and opt-out of some or all OMB may visit the Digital Advertising Alliance's Consumer Choice Tool


This section is applicable to Nevada consumers only. Nevada consumers have the right to request Sargento to not sell their information. This verified request is effective for current and future sales. To opt-out of sales of personally identifiable information, please contact the email address below:

We comply fully with this requirement.
